Pensioners are already dying from cold related illnesses, and the situation will only get far worse with the forthcoming increases in the cost of living and fuel bills.

It’s estimated that GAS PRICES Will INCREASE BY UP TO 30% next year that will result in far higher number of Pensioners and those most vulnerable dying.

It is predicted the energy price cap will go up to about £1,660 in the summer, almost £400 an increase of 30%.

Immediate action is for the Government to halt any increase to fuel and other bills.

This must be followed up to make sure older people have a well-insulated,

warm home with income needed to pay fuel bills. This should be a basic requirement for a decent society to do.

We must have a programme to insulate homes, this would help with the climate crisis, build more suitable properties, raise winter fuel allowance, ending the excessive profits of the big six energy companies.
